Ranking alongside the Volkswagen Beetle, Mini, and Land Rover as one of the classic mass-produced cars of the post-war era, Citroën's quirky 2CV debuted in 1949. Intended to provide basic transport in a period of post-war austerity, the 2CV outlived its humble beginnings, going on to attain cult status as the favoured car of the environmentally concerned motorist. Although the original 375cc air-cooled flat-twin engine grew eventually to 602cc, the 2CV's performance remained relatively modest at around 110km/h flat-out, not that that concerned the majority of its devotees for whom the roomy interior, full-length sunroof and frugal fuel consumption were of far greater importance. It was a sad day for many when the last French-built 2CV left the Levallois factory in 1988, although production continued in Portugal for two more years.
An example fitted with the 425cc engine, this 2CV has been in the same family ownership from new and, according to the mechanic of the vendor, believed to have covered only 33,000-or-so kilometres to date. Repainted green (from the original Carrare), the car comes with photographs taken before and after the re-spray, a copy of the purchase invoice dated 29th June 1962, invoice on work carried out, sundry owner's notes, owners manual and Belgian registration papers.

No reserve
